Pine marten

The Pine marten was another key species I intended to photograph on my recent trip to Scotland, and they didn't disappoint. This is just one of a large series of shots that had them clambering over rocks, climbing trees, and scrambling on top of each other. Part of the mustelid family of mammals, which includes Badger, Weasel, Otter and Stoat, Pine martens are
cat-sized, and live in native woodlands but can also live in conifer plantations and on rocky hillsides.
